From conference coordinator Kathy and board chair Camille:




We are re-imagining SiWC for 2020 due to Covid-19. So...when October rolls around, please join us for our virtual writers' conference: SiWC at Home! 


Our team is hard at work to bring this vision into focus, but here's what we know so far: 


- The event will be held on the same dates (October 22-October 25) in lieu of our in-person conference. (If you've already booked your flights, please don't forget to cancel them. The hotel will cancel your SiWC group hotel room booking for you and email you a confirmation. You don't need to contact them.)

- We are working on offering virtual master classes and workshops, so get excited! 

- Registration will likely be a little postponed, but it WILL happen. In the midst of all the chaos, we want more than anything for this conference to be affordable for everyone, so we are working hard to make sure that this year's registration fees reflect that.

- Our writing contest is continuing unchanged and is already open for entries. Get writing!


You're our family, and we won't let you down. SiWC lives on! #thisdaywewrite #SiWC20 


Please stay tuned for more details (coming soon).




Kathy Chung, SiWC Conference Coordinator

and Camille Netherton, SiWC Chair
